One Hundred Members of the Association of British Neurologists: A Collective Biography for 1933–1960.

One Hundred Members of the Association of British Neurologists: A Collective Biography for 1933–1960.
Journal of the History of the Neurosciences. Oct-Dec2011, Vol. 20 Issue 4, p338-356. 19p. 1 Chart, 11 Graphs.
This article draws a quantitative portrait of British neurology in the interwar and postwar periods through an analysis of the first 100 members of the Association of British Neurologists. Through its presentation of data, this article argues that the members of the Association of British Neurologists were extremely ambitious and as a whole had attained unusually high levels of social, professional, and civil distinction. It makes this argument through an examination of their social and educational backgrounds, the trajectory of their careers, and their achievements in the form of editorships of journals, professorships in medicine, positions in government, honorary degrees, and other indicators of merit. This collective study therefore offers an explanation for how the Association of British Neurologists transformed from an elite club in the 1930s into an organization that eventually came to represent clinical neurology across Britain.

Organismic self-regulation in Kurt Goldstein's holistic approach
International Body Psychotherapy Journal. Spring, 2012, Vol. 11 Issue 1, p57, 9 p.
One of the "most important, most contradictory, and now most forgotten figures in the history of neurology and psychiatry" (Sacks, 1995, p. 7), Kurt Goldstein (1878-1965) and his work can [...]
The author presents a brief intellectual biography of Kurt Goldstein which focuses on the concept of organismic self-regulation--the true leitmotiv of his entire theorization, beginning from the Frankfurt (1914-1930) and Berlin (1930-1933) periods, across the long period spent in the U.S. (he was one of the first victims of the Nazi persecutions), and up to his death in New York in September 1965. In particular, emphasis is given to the gradual shifting of his thinking from an unmistakably neurophysiological plane, which in The Organism leads to the formulation of the 'basic biological law': Equalization toward an 'adequate' average level in an 'adequate' time--a 'law' that seemingly takes us back to Walter Cannon's homeostatic regulation principle--to a more philosophical, existential, and ontological plane, which underlies the concept of self-realization. Abstracts of this article are to be found on the EABP website in the following languages: Albanian, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Serbian, Spanish. http://www.eabp.org/publications-journal.php Keywords: equalization, organismic constants, individual norm, self-realization

The article presents a biography of neurologist and psychiatrist Kurt Goldstein, with emphasis given to his work studying patients with neurological disorders. Goldstein was taught by neurologists Carl Wernicke and Ludwig Edinger. He developed a theory on abstract and concrete attitudes. He did not believe human behavior could only be characterized by reflexes. He escaped to the U.S. in 1935 to avoid Nazi persecution.

The biography of Mary E. O'Sullivan: an early American headache specialist.

The aim of this study was to review the life of Mary E. O'Sullivan and to summarize her important contributions to the study of migraine. Mary E. O'Sullivan underwent extensive training to become a neurologist at a time when only 5% of women in America were physicians. She published five papers on migraine. In a 1936 Journal of the American Medical Association article, she described a patient with ergotamine overuse headache and recommended that daily doses of oral ergotamine should be avoided. Three years later she described migraine as a 'complex' syndrome with multiple causes and multiple cures. Mary E. O'Sullivan, an ambitious female headache specialist of the 1930s, was an early advocate of the use of ergotamine to treat migraine, yet she was one of the first to report ergotamine overuse headache. Although her life was short, her research, knowledge and ambition at a time when women had limited opportunities in medicine have left a mark.

James Ramsay Hunt (1874-1937) was a pre-eminent twentieth-century American neurologist. The name of Ramsay Hunt is known today because several neurological disorders bear his name, including the herpetic geniculate ganglion syndrome and a form of ataxia and myoclonus. Despite his importance in the field of neurology, few biographical details have been recorded about Hunt's life. One of the authors of this report recently located Hunt's daughter. This biographical sketch was based on interviews conducted with her and review of documents in her possession, including letters written by Hunt. Details are depicted about Hunt's family background and childhood, medical education and early professional development, courtship and marriage, wartime experiences, family and social life, daily routine and professional development, as well as illness and death.
